They have to recoup the cost of purchase of Bethesda, it was a massive acquisition and I would be surprised as hell if they device to keep anything exclusive.
Exclusivity would just harm revenue, they had to look at the current Bethesda books and factored in how long it would take to recoup the purchase, there's no way they'd be cutting off platforms, hell, you'd want to EXPAND platforms, if anything!
Skyrim on fridges!
You do realise Microsoft has so much money that they could buy Sony ten times, if they were on sale right?
Bethesda wasn't about getting their money back. As I said previously, they will never get the 7. 5 billion back, even if they went multiplatform.
But explain to me, why should Microsoft invest 7.5 billion in Bethesda, if they release it on all platforms? I need to understand why Microsoft should buy a multiplatform studio if they kept being multiplatform.
Microsoft doesn't need money. They couldn't even feel the purchase of Bethesda. Microsoft is so much more than Xbox.
